    I especially liked Simic’s memoir about his early wartime experiences and journey to the US. The philosophy I could live without. I guess I learned that I favour an anti-visionary worldview, but I expect I knew that already.

    I love Simic's sense of poetry. Keep rereading the chapter Wonderful Words, Silent Truths. It's mind opening . I read this book slowly, and I'll keep returning to it. It is a master course in poetry. I love Simic's sense of poetry. Keep rereading the chapter Wonderful Words, Silent Truths. It's mind opening . I read this book slowly, and I'll keep returning to it.

    This was a wonderful little collection. Each piece is a little jewel. The essay on his life and escape from the former Yugoslavia is one amazing piece of history - but so are the pieces that are meditations on poetry (his own and others) and philosophy. He is a wit, as well as very insightful. I really loved this book.
